Body Drench Coconut Lime Goodness

7/15/2014



Body Drench. The word combo itself sounds delicious and (dare I say) - thirst quenching? I was always interested in trying this American brand's body care products and I do like the idea of trying new (for me at least) fruity scented body care. I don't know why is that but I must admit that I struggle to find a fruity scented body lotion that isn't sickly sweet. I have a sensitive nose and belly to certain scents (such a grandma thing to say!) and I'm really envious of all people who enjoy in their vanilla and chocolate body creams, lotions and milks. That is just not going to happen with me, especially during summer - no sweet stuff. That's why I was really happy when I've received this awesome Body Drench Coconut Lime Goodness duo for my birthday. If you can remember, I used the I Love Coconut & Cream body butter in the past and I really loved it but using up an entire body butter can make even the most amazing product boring. I just seem to get tired of most of them after a while. Also, coconut itself is not my favorite scent per se but I liked it in the body butter but I adore it in the Body Drench Coconut Lime Body Lotion (236ml/$8.99). The lime, I think, makes a perfect balance and this body lotion doesn't smell sweet at all. In fact, it smells very 'real' of raw lime and there is some coconut drifting around. Quite a bitter aroma makes an ideal summer-y body lotion as it's not cloying or sickly. The formula is amazing as well - very nourishing (even for dry skin) yet never sticky.

Body Drench. Sam naziv tj. kombinacija rijeci na engleskom jeziku zvuci socno i moram priznati da sam odavno zainteresovana da isprobam proizvode za njegu tijela ove americke kompanije. Uopsteno volim isprobati neke nove (barem nove za mene) mazalice za tijelo vocnih mirisa. Zanima me kakvo je vase misljenje na ovu temu no meni je prilicno tesko pronaci neki vocni losion, kremu itd. koji nece biti isuvise sladak. Imam prilicno osjetljiv nos i stomacic na odredjene mirise (da li to osjetim kako me godine sustizu?) te sam prilicno ljubomorna na sve sretnice koje mogu uzivati u svojim gurmanskim mazalicama koje mirisu na vaniliju ili cokoladu. Nazalost, taj scenario tesko da ce biti dio realnosti za mene, posebno tokom ljeta kada imam strogo pravilo o nekoristenju stvarcica slatkog mirisa. Kada sam dobila na rodjendan fantastican poklon u vidu Body Drench kokos limeta dvojca, itekako sam se obradovala. Ukoliko se sjecate, prosle godine sam koristila I Love kokos i krema buter za tijelo koji mi je ostao u lijepom sjecanju ali istrositi cijelo pakovanje butera za tijelo je nimalo lagan zadatak koji nesvjesno moze uciniti da interes za taj proizvod drasticno opadne nakon nekog vremena. Jednostavno se zasitim odredjenih proizvoda nakon intenzivne visemjesecne upotrebe. Takodjer, miris kokosa ne spada u meni omiljene ali dopadao mi se kod butera no potpuno sam zaludjena mirisom Body Drench kokos i limeta losiona za tijelo (236ml/11,75KM). Mislim da je limeta ta koja pravi idealnu protutezu slatkom kokosu i svojom ostrinom uspostavlja balans. Uopste se ne radi o slatko-mirisnom proizvodu vec je cak i dosta gorak sto ga cini savrsenim za ljeto posto je tako osvjezavajuci. Formulacija je izvrsna jer ukratko - intenzivno hidratizira kozu (cak i suhu) no nikada nije ljepljiv niti tezak.



Second item from this range I love is the Body Drench Coconut Lime Lip Drench (4,3g/$4.99) - see what they did there? I love the packaging, it's so fun and happy yet very simple and the lip balm looks especially cute. Have you seen how pretty all different lip balm scents look when stacked together? They're like fruity sticks. Well, I'm glad that the lip balm shares the exact same scent as the body lotion - don't you find it annoying when products from the same scent range end up with different smells? It's quite noticeable of a scent so people who cannot handle that should probably stick to pharmacy offerings. Lip balm has a light sweet taste and the light lime green coloring makes it very swish. This is a very basic product meaning that it's quite straightforward and you know what to expect. It's a very nice, creamy lip balm that will probably sort anyone's lips in no time. Leaves lips very soft and moisturized. Carefully placed safety seal is always a nice detail. It's an everyday lip balm, not exactly overly nourishing as to be used like a night treatment but you definitely see its effect on your lips. Very nice, fresh and summer-y products indeed. Cannot really fault them as they're affordable as well.

Drugi proizvod iz navedene linije je Body Drench kokos i limeta 'lip drench' balzam za usne (zabavna igra rijecima - 4,3g/cca 4KM). Pakovanje je jako simpaticno, zabavno a istovremeno jednostavno no balzam za usne u mojim ocima ima posebnu draz. Ne znam da li ste imale priliku pogledati citav stalak sa svim mirisima Body Drench balzama za usne? Djeluju preslatko, kao malo vocni stapici. U svakom slucaju, drago mi je sto balzam za usne dijeli isti miris kao losion za tijelo jer - zar nije iritantno kada proizvodi iz iste mirisne linije imaju razlicite mirise? Mozda je to besmislena zamjerka no meni to nekada smeta sto nije slucaj sa ovim proizvodima. Realistican miris gorke limete i blagog kokosa koji se provlaci kroz zrak je dosta intenzivan sto bih protumacila kao pozitivnu stvar. Ipak, osobe koje ne preferiraju izrazene mirise u kozmetici - apotekarski brendovi su vjerovatno bolji izbor radi vasih preferenci. Balzam za usne je blago slatkog ukusa i svijetlo zelene boje limete zbog cega djeluje svjeze. Ovdje se radi o prilicno jednostavnom balzamu u smislu - dobijete upravo ono sto i ocekujete za svoj novac. Jako lijep, kremast balzam za usne koji mi se cini dosta univerzalnim te kao da bi pruzio njegu vecini usana. Cini ih jako mekanim i hidratiziranim. Garantna naljepnica da proizvod nije prethodno otvoren je takodjer detalj koji cijenim. Ovo je dobar balzam za usne za svakodnevnu upotrebu, ne toliko kao nocni tretman no efekat na usnama je primjetan. Oba proizvoda su dosta dopadljiva, prikladna za ljeto i tesko mi je pronaci im manu. Mozete ih naruciti preko Facebook stranice Lilocosmetics Kakanj.
